As they pop each balloon it will be recorded on the side on a graph. At the end students are asked to count the balloons and the click the number. Click below on Count the Balloons.

Fine Motor Practice / Brain Break Website

January is winter month in our classroom, so most activities have a winter theme. I found this cute website that allows students to hit the snowman with a snowball. The snowman pops up and the students touch the snowman with their snowball. Great for fine motor practice or just a brain break or reward for good work. Click below on Snowman Snowball.

Brain Break Ideas

I remember a couple of years ago trying to come up with some quick and easy movement/brain break ideas that could be done as a whole class or in a circuit. While years later I finally found a great document that stresses the importance of brain breaks as well as gives some great suggestions. It’s a short easy read and has great suggestions.

Sensory Idea


Another great idea for you! Why not try this as a sensory, brain break or afternoon activity. I know some of my kiddos would love it. A big piece of paper or two taped side by side and crayons.

Fine Motor and Keep Busy Activity


Here is a great activity for students to practice fine motor as well as to keep them busy for a bit.  Take a bunch of elastics and a can. Have students put the elastics on to the can. Simple materials you can find for free and a great activity.

Happy SMARTboarding,
